Hibernation Cave

Standard - Holiday 2012

Sometimes dragons like to be in dark places. Since we're sure that you don't want an angry dragon on your hands we thought that it'd be wise to provide a dark place away from the prying eyes of visitors for some of your dragons. Of course, since visitors can't see them, these dragons will not earn any income while hibernating!

The Hibernation Cave allows you to store Dragons within it. Dragons that are stored do not earn income for their habitats and cannot be fed. The Hibernation Cave can be bought in the Market in the Buildings section. The build time for the Hibernation Cave is instantaneous.


Shrines: Dragons can be fed to level 10 and be stored in the Hibernation Cave. Once the shrine you are working on turns silver you can take each dragon out one by one and feed it to level 15 before selling/keeping it. This will help save dragoncash and treats while trying to obtain the Gold Shrines.

Breeding: Additionally, keeping second dragons in the Hibernation Cave will allow for Breeding of multiples when new hard-to-breed dragons are introduced, so that you may try in the Epic Breeding Island, Epic Breeding Sanctuary, the Breeding Cave, and/or the Enchanted Breeding Cave to obtain and display Eggs; and/or to breed/sell for dragoncash when needed.
